How To Make Instant Energy Ginger Citrus Spritz
Refresh with a sharp, tangy jolt from this citrus spritz drink with ginger syrup, orange juice, and club soda to balance the sweetness and spiciness.
- ½cupcold water
- 1fresh ginger,3 in (7 cm) peeled and finely grated
- 1½cupsorange juice,freshly squeezed
- ¾cuporange liqueur,such as aperol
- 12ozclub soda
- 1navel orange,sliced into rounds
Make the ginger simple syrup: In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, water, and ginger. Bring to a low boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes, until the sugar is fully dissolved and the ginger is fragrant.
Remove from heat and let cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve. This will produce at least ⅓ cup of syrup.
Fill a 10-cup pitcher halfway with ice. Pour in the ginger simple syrup, orange juice, and prosecco and stir to combine.
Top with the bitter orange liqueur and club soda. Fill the pitcher with the orange slices. Serve immediately.
